Manic Monday

I got some love here! <--- Check it out peeps. I sponsor one of the coolest chics. Her site is Automatism. In return of my sponsorship she gave me a plug and I so very much appreciate it. She's another one that is full of inspirational posts. Mainly pictures, which is what I'm all about. Lots of color, loads of life.

By the way, I am up to my eyeballs in new good reads. *woot woot* I'm on Cloud 9 yo. Oh and I thought I'd be able to update my sidebar blogroll last night but after uploading new jewels and adding newbies to my bloglines, it was all I could do not to fall asleep with J's laptop in my yap.

And is it just me or do you also have a hard time cleaning out your bloglines? (Or whatever site/program you use to keep up with your reads.) I'm putting it off until lunch because I can't (just yet) delete blogs that no longer update when I've been reading them since I started blogging. I mean, WHAT IF they pop in again? Start up their clever and I go and miss it? *sigh*

Alright, alright. Here's my Manic Monday. Play along if you like. You know you wanna.






What's the most embarrassing song on your iPod (or music collection)?

I have really raunchy rap music on my iPod for workouts. Besides Disturbed, there's nothing better to run on a treadmill to than booty shaking rap music.

Is it embarrassing? Yes. Does it keep me pumped enough to run? Yes.

How much time do you spend each day in your commute? (Or if you don't work outside the house, how much time do you spend in your car or other preferred mode of transportation?)

My drive to work is about 25-30 minutes every morning and every evening. I live in a more rural area called Central. My office is in the "city", which is close enough for work but far enough that I can enjoy the calm quiet of a small town, without all the traffic and hubbub.

Its funny, just five years or so ago I just couldn't WAIT to live in my own apartment in the city. Lived there alone for 4 years and loved it. But when I started dating J, suddenly things changed. It wasn't just my family wishing I was back in the small town I grew up in, it was myself as well wishing away for it. And now I'm back. (And wondering why the hell I left in the first place...) I'm a country girl at heart.

What's your favorite wardrobe item and why?

If you know me the least little bit, you know I ADORE pajama pants. They should be considered business casual so I can wear them to work.

But I know that's boring to most, so I'll amuse you. My second favorite would probably be my new black (faux) snakeskin heels. They go with everything and aren't your every day boring black heel. I can wear them with my LBD in the evening or my slacks by day. They are love to me.

I just switched from Bloglines to Google Reader and I gotta say, it seems to perform way better! I was missing a lot of updates from people with BL. Anyway!

I have lots of Eminem on my iPod. And Johnny Cash. Seriously, when I hit Shuffle, you never know what's going to come out of that thing!

Your blog is so cheery! I found you through Manic Monday, which I just started. I'm sure I'll be visiting here often. :D

Cheryl said...

There are tons of really old Chinese people here walking around in public in their pajamas. apparently it's because they don't know that they're pj's.

The Other K Wick said...

Congrats on the plug. Your jillry is too cute!!

By the way, I tagged you in a blog of mine.

OK, is this a magic blog? You've just thoroughly freaked me out. I clicked over, having not seen you around for awhile, only to find page after page of headlines with no content. I began highlighting everything and discovered that, indeed, there is writing there. I just can't see it. I don't know if it's because I'm using Google Chrome or don't have my special 3D glasses on, but this freaked me out.

OK, I know this has nothing to do with anything you've said. Still, did I mention that it freaked me out?
